Tarot_001Quote: “Incidents of rape have gone up by 873% in India in the past 60 years. On average, each day, three Dalit women are raped in some part of our country. The conviction rate for rape cases in 2011 was 25% — although some estimate only one in 10 rapes is reported. The conviction rate for men accused of raping Dalit women is almost nil……. and the number of children raped has increased by 336% in the past 10 years.”

That is from here. All this as India trumpets the age of their culture and superiority of their religious systems. Given lie, I’d say, by lower caste women being seen as a sickening sort of “public” utility for every walking cock.

Of course, I am spitting about America, too. Where a male teacher can have sex with a 14 year old, who later commits suicide, btw…and get only a MONTH in jail from a male judge. Can we say rape culture, folks?

Herland

The name of this blog, and my Dreamwidth blog, Herlander Refugee, is taken from a 1915 feminist novel "Herland". It makes my heart sing that modern women are experimenting with creation of a new "Herland"! Yes, comments are closed. Anyone who just MUST reach me can do so at syrbal6 at gmail dot com.
